So if you're going for color, in my experience, those type veggies are best used raw for the most impact.
Claire, I have to agree with you on this. Actually I bought the purple capsicums out of curiosity, just to try them. I was disappointed as they were not as sweet as the red ones and have since disappeared from the marketplace. I seldom use red cabbage and when I do, I add a little more for its colour, to my cabbage, carrot, and dill salad.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!
